evidence. and it will be handled. over that investigation will be former fbi director, robert mueller, commissioned to conduct the investigation, overseen by nfl owners john marvin, new york giants and art rooney of the pittsburgh steelers. now, while everyone is still trying to figure out what exactly the nfl knew about this video, ravens' owner, steve ba shaty, shared his regrets about what the ravens didn't do. >> where we dropped the ball -- i'm not -- i will kind of speak for the league, but i'm speaking about us as the ravens, that we sat back and let others do it. it's easy to say now that if the league can't get it, the team can't get it. but i know the effort we put in, and we called everybody that we could to try and get that. >> reporter: you have to remember, it's owners like steve ba shaty who employ commissioner roger goodell. if it turns out he did see this video, if he lied about having it, the openers would have to

5:17 pm
intensive rehab. going through her bills, she found a charge on her american express card statement that didn't quite make sense. >> i opened my american express bill. and there is $105 charge three times. >> reporter: mindy gardner tells me that charge was for her easy pass. but the amount seemed way too high. >> so at $75, 11/11. 27, 19, 105. that's in one day. >> reporter: that's a lot of driving. especially for a woman who is confined to this home hospital bed for weeks. >> i was heavily, heavily medicated. and -- but -- a lot of injuries from head to toe. >> reporter: this is what was left of mindy's car after that february wreck. >> never occurred to me that the easy pass would even survive the accident, much less anybody was using it. >> reporter: mindy called easy pass. they immediately cancelled her transponder. she found out her pass was used for several months, leaving virginia, into new jersey, and then new york, and even as far
5:18 pm
north as massachusetts. the total? $1003.78. >> on your tab. >> on my tab. >> then she called henry's wrecker service. >> i said, look, this is what happened. i need to know when the car was taken away and who took it. and the response was, have a happy henry's day. and i was hung up on. >> reporter: then the phone call to fairfax county police. trouble is? >> our detectives don't have jurisdiction outside fairfax county. >> repor american express ultimately told her they could not remove the charge so how mindy is stuck with the tab. >> you look at the picture of the car, it's easy to understand that was a great target. whoever was in that car was not going to be in a situation to be thinking about the easy pass. >> just a short time ago i spoke with representatives from american express and henry's wrecking service. both tell me they're investigating mindy's case and vdot tells me tonight they're going to help connect mindy to
5:19 pm

5:20 pm
looking at a couple showers there. we even had a couple come right through the beltway. but these are just showers. the heaviest of these right now right around the warrenton area. i would not be surprised as these move off towards the east, however, to pick up a little bit of lightning, in the way of heavier rain. we're not talking about strong storms. all of those stay just down to our south. and i do mean just to our south. look at roanoke. seeing a line of storms there, lightning associated with those. this is all part of the cold front that is now drifting across our area. and the rain is really only one side of the story. the other side is going to be the fact that we're dealing with some much cooler temperatures. 9:30 tonight, most of the rain out of here. maybe southern maryland seeing showers. tomorr waking up to some cloud cover, some sun to the north but then watch what happens during the day. we get cloudy again as another little system moves over. so i'm expecting a lot in the way of cloud cover. some sunshine. and what i think should be a nice friday afternoon. saturday, a different story. if you have plans on saturday, this is a forecast you want to take a look at. because 8:00 a.m. on saturday
5:21 pm
morning, culpeper, orange, front royal, winchester, shower activity. more shower activity almost all day. it's going to be off and on. some of it will be heavier than others. we're not talking about any big storms. that is going to be rain that comes through. high temperatures only in the 70s. some of the heaviest rain in the afternoon. so taste of georgetown going on this weekend from noon to 5:00. what are we expecting? bring the umbrellas for sure. we do expect rain. most of the afternoon, at least off and on. this will not be an all-day rain but off and on. some locations could pick up a quarter inch, maybe even more. so heads up for that with those temperatures into the low 70s. not the best day for a taste of georgetown but also not the worst. big enough umbrella, you stay dry. high temperatures tomorrow, 78 in d.c. 79 fredericksburg. 76 in gaithersburg. if we see some sunshine. we'll definitely see these numbers, maybe cooler in some locations. your impact forecast tomorrow, no impact. cool, with some filtered sunshine. but we're really not dealing with a bad day tomorrow. saturday, more showers for sure, 74 degrees.
5:22 pm
sunday looks great. 75 degrees as the redskins play at home this weekend, looking very good there. 78 on your monday and next week, we stay in the 70s, guys. the first seven-day period with temperatures all in the 70s in months. >> nice. well, a letter that's going home with students at mckinley middle school tonight after a sixth grade teacher's controversial assignment. we first told you last night on news4 at 11:00, which asked students to draw comparisons between former president george w. bush and adolf hitler. it prompted a statement from the d.c. schools last night, saying this was not a district-approved as. and now that letter to parents which reads in part, quote, the assignment reflected extremely poor judgment and we as a school community are very sorry this happened. our teacher deeply regrets this mistake as there was no malice intended. a local swim coach was very popular in the community, but now he's going to jail. he learns his fate after taking

5:27 pm
